I think WS Rewards should be end-game caliber from the very first season.
Some people can’t make WS every season. Imagine making it to WS just once—Season One for Juan Pierre. And you never made again!! That’s horrible.
Now imagine only making it once—for Willie Mays.
Why does the guy who made it once late in the game cycle get an end-game caliber player (or one million stubs) and the guy who made it once early gets...Juan Pierre.
That isn’t right.
And before you say we shouldn’t have end-game caliber players on day one, consider you could get Mantle, Biggio, and Sheffield on day one, and they’re end-game players.
I’ve made it several times, so I’m not posting this for myself. I was just thinking, “Man, if I made it in Season One and haven’t made it since I’d be feeling like I got robbed.”
